This summer, while at ReFresh with in Atlanta with some TD’ers, I had a chance to spend some time with dear friend, Jill Carattini, writer extraordinaire on the deeper spiritual life, managing editor of Ravi Zacharias Int’l Ministries’ (RZIM) Slice of Infinity, and curator of RZIM’s formal art gallery, Stillpoint.
Jill agreed to come on camera with me and share with you TD’ers how the arts can deepen and energize your faith, and help you to get a greater apprehension of who we are. It’s spiritually insightful and very personal and vulnerable, reflecting her journey, my journey, … and for many of you … your journey. Where she was is where many of you are at. It will be a worthwhile viewing.
With Offerings 8 coming up on November 16, I thought this would be a great time to give you some inspiration and perspective, so you can prepare to give a meaningful offering to the Lord. Enjoy! – Arthur
“Remember the days of old; consider the years of many generations; ask your father, and he will show you, your elders, and they will tell you.” Deuteronomy 32:7
Last week, Daniel began taking us on a fun and enlightening journey through TD’s history, beginning with the Pre-TD Era and the TD Era. This week, he’ll continue his tour by taking us through the Early Modern TD Era and landing at the current Modern TD Era.
We’ll then go from overview to underview as we go under the hood of TD and take a look at its infrastructure and the ministries that make TD go; ministries that you have an opportunity to participate in and shape in the upcoming year. We’ll hear from those heading up those ministry groups, as they share their vision and heart.
We’ll also hear from the team that went to serve orphans in China this summer through Bring Me Hope’s Summer Camp!
Ravi’s recap of Refresh (look who made it in the video!)
Many students responded in faith and commitment at Refresh ’18, including some of our own TD’ers. Ravi’s message at Refresh ’18 brought conviction and perspective to all of us present. Even though it’s not the same as being there, you can still watch the videos above and glean from one of God’s choice servants. In our day and age, where the private life has not only gone so public, but has gone so wrong, this is a timely message calling for integrity and transparency before God. Please watch, pray, and obey. God bless you. – Arthur
It was a powerful evening with Ravi last night. Hearts were convicted, tears flowed (as maybe you can tell), consciences were seared, and lives were surrendered to our gracious Lord. In today’s vlog, Michelle and Anabell share a short recap!
This Friday is Fun and Faith Night at TD. We’ll be chilling, playing games, eating snacks, and just having fun together. We will also share some vision and some great opportunities you will have in the upcoming weeks and months to grow in faith, serve in faith, and reach out in faith.
As shared earlier this year, TD’s infrastructure is built upon the four prongs that I believe should be the grounding of every Christian’s life and our ministry here at TD – Upward, Outward, Downward, and Inward.
This Friday, you will join one of the ministry groups – Upward, Outward, Downward, Inward, ArtReach, and Cinematic – and help plan TD’s ministry for the rest of the year.
Before coming into this Friday, we’d like to ask you to review the Prezi that Judy put together for the TD Orientation that describes the prongs and ministry groups: TD Infrastructure Prezi.
In addition, here’s Friday’s message and Table of Contents that should be understood before we head into Part 2 this Friday:
